Kolb named NFC Offensive Player of the Week

Quarterback Kevin Kolb was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in the Eagles' 31-17 victory over the Atlanta Falcons Sunday.

Kolb, filling in for the injured Michael Vick, completed 23 of 29 passes for 326 yards and three touchdowns. It's the second time in five career starts that Kolb has won the award. He was also honored last season after the Kansas City game.

Kolb is expected to start for the third straight week when the Eagles visit the 4-2 Tennessee Titans on Sunday. Eagles coach Andy Reid said Monday that "there's a pretty good chance Kevin is the guy." Vick, during an appearance on a Virginia Beach radio station Monday, said that he wouldn't be able to return from his rib injury until after an Oct. 31 bye The Eagles then host the Colts on Nov. 7.

Titans coach Jeff Fisher, however, said Wednesday during a conference call with Philadelphia reporters that he is preparing for both Kolb or Vick to play.

Tennessee has quarterback issues, as well, after starter Vince Young injured his knee and ankle in a Monday night win over Jacksonville. Fisher said there's a "pretty good" chance Young will be able go against the Eagles. The quarterback won't practice in Wednesday's light workout -- Kerry Collins will take his place -- but Fisher said not practicing shouldn't preclude Young from starting Sunday.

In other news, the Eagles were not expected to sign any of the four players -- defensive tackles Dre Moore, Quinn Pitcock, Tank Tyler and tight end John Nalbone -- they worked out Tuesday at this time.
